Über Baby Bash
Baby Bash's first success came as part of the Latin rap group Latino Velvet, where he was known as Baby Beesh. Latino Velvet released two albums and toured consistently, earning a loyal following in California. When the group eventually parted ways, Houston rapper South Park Mexican asked Bash to work on some songs with him. Frequent travels back and forth from California to Texas (coupled with Cali's skyrocketing rents) led Bash to relocate to Houston, where he immersed himself in the burgeoning Latin rap scene. With his heavy beats and fly rhymes constructed around solid hooks, it didn't take too long for the labels to come knocking. Bash released his major label debut, Tha Smokin' Nephew, in 2003, and scored with the single, "Suga Suga." In March, 2005, Baby Bash released his sophomore effort, Super Saucy. The album played like an ode to women, weed and whiskey (Hennessey, of course), and gleaned the radio hit, "Who Wit Me."
